Halo Headlights Wiring

I recently purchased halo headlights from amazon to replace the OEM ones in my 89 YJ. They are manufactured by New World Motoring but it didn’t come with any instructions (it even said to look on YouTube but couldn’t find anything). Does anyone have any information/ tips on how to get these dang things installed? I’m pretty sure normally it’s a plug and play type of installation but there is no where to plug in the wiring harness (the thing with three prongs). I’m new to all of this so any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

Have you pulled the rubber plug off the back yet? Should be something under there you can plug/wire into.
If these are anything like the ones we put on my daughter's TJ you will need to find a power source for the 'halo' portion. That might either be parking light circuit, turn signal circuit or ever a keyed source to use for daylight running lights. Just be careful about the color you're running. In most states red or blue is fairly unwelcomed when displayed up front.
Pop off that rubber cap on the back and post a photo of what's there.

Here are the pics of the connections. I pulled the plug off of the back of the old headlights in order to get them out but there's no place to plug them into the new headlights, if that makes sense. It appears the only connections these headlights even have are the ground wires, so I'm not sure how to incorporate it into my wiring harness. Not really sure how all this works. Let me know if these pics help any.

Thanks!

The instructions state that professional installation is required.
Since you're a forum member and some of us allege that we're professionals, we can help.
Please post a pic of the back of the headlight assembly.
The ad states that the headlights use a H4 bulb. H4 bulbs should have a 3 prong plug on the back that the plastic plug in your #5 pic plugs onto.
Another ad I looked at stated that the lamp assemblies don't come with the H4 bulbs.

How do you want the HALOs to work? It looks like they can be wired to work as park lights or signal lights.

When you post a pic of the back of the light, with and without the rubber cap we should be able to give you good suggestions.

Good Luck, L.M.

Do you have a schematic supplied by the mfg of the lights? That might help considerably.
And something to remember about LEDs is that they are polarity specific, unlike an incandescent bulb. If you wire them backwards, no harm done, but they won't light. Switch the wiring around and they will work.
It may come down to using jumper wires to identify where you need to supply power (and ground), but with a couple of pics as Mac requested, and that schematic, someone can probably get you lit (no pun intended {well actually it was}).

I put H4 bulbs in the halos and they plug in, but I have no idea where to put the ground and positive connection. Also, a word to the wise... these halos barely fit. I had to bend the bracket all sorts of ways to make it wider to fit the headlight, then the headlight bezel barely fit.

In regards to how I want the headlights to work, I really just want to be able to switch them on at night in place of my regular lights. Thanks for the heads up about some states restricting colors... glad I didn't have to find out the hard way. I probably won't be doing any crazy colors, but I do have a remote with options.

I don't have a diagram or anything. The headlights came in a box with a piece of foam and remote. I watched a video online where my ground can attach to the tub and the positive wire should be attached to accessories fuse. Does this sound correct?

I really appreciate your guys' advice....

Perhaps I am misunderstanding what you have for lights. With the halos that I've installed, the actual halo served a separate function - like a turn signal. From what I'm getting now, it seems that yours are simply a two wire setup controlled then by your remote. If that's the case, then yes, just find a keyed accessory power source and connect as stated in the instructions.
I also may have misunderstood about the light too - I assumed it was LED. Is it just a lamp into which you're inserting your H4, and NOT an LED replacement lamp?

There's no specific function for them. You're right about the remote and just using them as an add-on, no turn signal functionality or anything. I haven't had a chance to delve into it much this weekend with work but I figured I'll try to wire to the accessories fuse... once I find the fuse box. I just inserted the H4 bulb into the headlight assembly itself, I'm assuming that's the lamp you're talking about. Thankfully I'll have a minute to work on it some today so I will post pics and let you know if I get it functioning correctly.

Thanks again!

There's a few light options;
There's the actual led version,
then there's the type that just has led on the halo but the actual headlight is just an h4 bulb (this is what the op's sound like.).
I would assume that as long as you wire it correctly, you could still use the halo anyway you want.
I've considered getting a set for my heep.
Since I'm going to be installing metal cloak tube fenders, I'm ditching the fender flare position light. And thought I'd just wire that into the halo of an aftermarket halo headlight.
